Summmer '18

Pera Learning Workshop Exhibition

August 15 - September 30, 2018

Pera Museum’s Summmer '18 exhibition highlighted the creative world of children participating in this year’s summer workshops inspired by Istanbul’s Seaside Leisure and Shaken Image exhibitions. The outcomes from all workshops was presented as a digital exhibition and a selected wide range was also on view in the workshop gallery space.

In these workshops, children discovered arts and crafts with the inspiration drawn from Pera Museum’s temporary exhibitions. Take a look at this year’s workshops.
